making the rounds on FB - don't turn off your Tv on inauguration day, leave it on but [View all]

on some channel not showing trumpenstein being sworn in:

"CALL TO ACTION: Don't turn off tv Inauguration Day!
DO NOT TURN OFF TV! Read on.
If you have cable or satellite TV, they keep track of who is watching what. Instead of turning your TV off that day, turn all your TVs on OTHER CHANNELS. Some suggestions would be:

The Science Channel
National Geographic
Discovery
Animal Planet
Comedy Central
or any channel not showing Drumpf

Here's the reason.
If 1000 households are watching TV that day:

400 or 40% are watching Drumpf.
600 or 60% are watching anything else.

With a boycott of 400, you have this:

400 or 67% are watching Drumpf
200 or 33% are watching anything else.

Suddenly, if we turn off the TVs, it looks like a large majority of viewers tuned into Drumpf. But if our TVs are tuned to other shows, the percentage drops.

For Drumpf, to have low ratings AND low percentage, it'll be a blow to his ego. Twitter will be hilarious.

Get it? Got it? Good."
